Benefit: Terrorist Extremists Are Not upon Salafiyyah, Plain and Simple
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
The misrepresentation of Salafīyyah as the ideology of extremists is widespread in the media and commonly found on the tongues of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. For those who desire the truth, a little research uncovers the stark difference between the call of the extremists (to violence and political instability) and the call of the Salafīs (to Tawḥīd and the Sunnah). This affair is summarized by Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis in the clip below, derived from a Q&A session from 2012. In a clear and articulate way, our beloved brother addresses the issue with examples from the Book of Allāh, the Sunnah of His Messenger ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam and narrations from the Companions. This benefit is a concise explanation of the way of the Salaf in contrast to the way of the terrorists. So take a listen and share it with your brothers and sisters, may Allāh reward you.
